President's & Dean's List

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette recognizes the academic rigor of high-performing students through the President’s List and Dean’s List. Both lists acknowledge those students who have earned a high GPA in a given semester.

Approximately 30 days after the end of each Fall and Spring semester, the Office of the University Registrar publishes the President’s List and Dean’s List on this website.

President's List

Eligible students are placed on the President’s List if they are a full-time student (enrolled in a minimum of 12 hours for the semester) and have earned a semester GPA of 3.8 or better.

Dean's List

Eligible students are placed on the Dean’s List if they are a full-time student (enrolled in a minimum of 12 hours for the semester) and have earned a semester GPA of 3.5 or better.


Congratulations to all students who’ve made the Dean’s List and President’s List!
